How far are you willing to go?

My name is Anastasia Valeeva and I’m a journalist from Russia. There are several reasons why I decided to move to Germany. I had already studied in Europe before. I visited the CFPJ (Centre de Formation et Perfectionnement des Journalistes) as an exchange student, while I was studying at the Moscow...

Nothing is new to me anymore

My name is Maria Gracia, originally from Ecuador and I came to Germany already a couple of yours ago to study. There are many things that I both like and dislike in Germany. I like, for example, that the education level is really high and you can learn many things….you can...

Access to the “real Germans”

My name is Alba and I’m a doctorate student on a scholarship. Originally I come from Spain and it’s been almost a year since I moved  to Germany.  Before coming here, I found out that there weren’t any travel guides written in Spanish, so I thought it could be a good...

I studied French and German at uni, and spent some time living in Paris, and then Tübingen in the southwest of Germany. Paris was wintery, vast, sprawling and taciturn and Tübingen was the complete opposite. I...

Afraid to open my mailbox

My biggest struggle when I moved to Germany was probably with myself (isn’t it always?). And even though I keep thinking as long as I am balanced I can be happy and content anywhere in the world the differences in culture also play a role. Aside from not being able...

More than just learning

In Iran teachers are always the ones talking all the time and students are very passive. I like to study the language in Germany because I can say almost everything, I can easily express my thoughts without being afraid. In my country many things are forbidden.

Born to be a global nomad

Where do you come from? It’s complex, but I have learnt to adjust my answers. Sometimes I’d say I am Canadian, originally from Romania, who studied in Sweden and now lives in Germany. Other times I’d say I am Romanian who grew up in Canada, studied in Sweden and currently...
